re: Mobile Health Revolution: Doctors And Patients Disagree
I can't imagine that physicians are taking time on their own to self educate about mHealth apps on top of learning their EMRs, eRX systems, CPOE lab ordering etc... I assume they equate it to using the internet to research your health issues, which can be frightening for patient and physician.
Maybe someday it'll be like pharm reps -- the app reps will go to the physicians offices and demo products in the hopes they'll suggest it to their patients. Until it gets to that point, where you're putting the product in the doctor's face to see/demo, I wouldn't expect many providers to concentrate or care about much about mHealth apps.
